Yes. On the FX-41s: the container was scheduled to arrive to port last Friday the 20th. They need to clear customs, and go inland to Wisconsin, and then ship to me. My estimate is that they will be shippable from me the week of Jan 6th. There is only 1 shipment, so they weill be limited, we are taking preorders on them now:

Regarding sizing, most likely you should gen an L. Unlike the 39s, the 41s are more consistent with industry norm. I wear an XL in an Arai XD4, an XL in the 41 (although the 41 is slightly looser than the Arai), and an L in the FX-39.

Hope that helps.

Has anyone run this helmet with a chatterbox? GMRS-X1 to be exact.
Or know if this helmet has enough space/cushion to fit on one of the sides? I am actually looking at a Fly Trekker from an inmate but this is the final deciding factor before I pull the trigger.

OK... so now that the helmet is shipping, has anybody tried using it with goggles. I know Brtp4 indicated that goggles would not work with the early production model he had but I am curious if the actual consumer models are any different. That seems like a pretty big deal on a DS helmet and would change my decision to go for a 39 versus a 41.

My proto had an issue that prevented the shield from retracting, but the production shields do retract all the way. Technically speaking they do fit, but it was a little finicky to do so IMO:

Another inmate had a better experience:

Again, I think they do fit, but I think some models may have issues.

Chin curtain doesn't want to stay in place. I see some people glue it in there, but I'm not sure I'm into that yet... Any tips? This is my first helmet with a chin curtain.

Thanks.

This is my first time wearing a motorcycle helmet...

Just got my FX-39 and the fit seems to be horrible for me. The cheek pads are so narrow that I feel like I am puckering for a kiss (uncomfortably). The fit around my head is fine, but the helmet sits too low, and my mouth is just barely above the breath guard, and causes the lens to fog when breathing. What helmets do I need to look for that fit properly? Thinner cheek pads for the 39???

Thanks, guys.
